posting photos to the right side widgets column on my blog

  1. I'm trying to put a picture of myself in the right column of my blog Alwaysbejobhunting.com, with the various widgets but can't find a way to do that, I've tried the photo one but it asks for a web address, is there no way to load a photo I have on the site into that side column? Also, I want to put a link there to my book on amazon and so far have only been able to put a small one, I want one that includes a picture of the book cover, is that possible?
    Blog url: http://alwaysbejobhunting.wordpress.com/

  2. Yes. You can capture the image of the bookcover, upload it and link it to the Amazon page, then and post it in your sidebar in either an image widget or a text widget.

  3. Its not working everytime i copy an image url from the media library into the image wigdet it disappears when i hit save so all i end up with is the title but no image, other suggestions?

  4. I suggest you create a draft post and do all your work in it. Once everything is proper then switch to the HTML editor and copy the code. Open a text widget and paste the code into it. Then check the diaply. If everytjing is fine you can delete the draft post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/links/text-widget-links/

    Shouldn't be happening. Please paste an example of the URLs you've tried to use.
